Richmond, Va Tomorrow night, the Virginia League for Planned Parenthood will partner with Xtra’s Café to host Cocktails for Choice. The partnership is the result of ongoing attacks on Planned Parenthood funding, services, and clinic access. Since January of this year, Planned Parenthood has been under state and federal assault, and its supporters and donors have risen to the occasion. This event will offer supporters a chance to hear more about upcoming challenges and learn how they can stay involved.

 “We are excited about this event because we have truly depended on our community recently; this is a chance to give back to the community and continue to raise awareness about threats to reproductive health care and rights,” said Courtney Jones, Manager of Grassroots Organizing.

“Xtra’s is a woman-owned and operated small business, and we hope to bring attention to her beautiful space, while highlighting the quality health care we provide to Richmond.” 

Cocktails for Choice will begin at 5:00pm and conclude at 7:30pm. $1 from every drink purchased will be donated to the Virginia League for Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood will also offer a limited edition compilation of patient stories from around the United States, titled Voices from Home: Stories of Planned Parenthood Patients. Information about Planned Parenthood services and volunteer opportunities will also be on hand.
